When was the last time you called home?

Home. The place where you took your first steps, got your first dollar from the tooth fairy, fell off of your bike and scraped your knee, had your first boyfriend and maybe your first heartbreak. Home is a place of comfort, growth, and coming of age. You spend years with your parents and maybe some siblings, forging a bond that will last a lifetime. You grow up and move out, which was probably a sad time for your parents and younger siblings. College, work, or life takes you in your own direction and down your own path. You’ve most likely established a support network wherever you are as life brings you new relationships and challenges. It becomes so easy to get sucked into your own life and forget to keep up with those who have been there from the beginning.

As simple as it is to call home, sometimes we get caught up in our own lives and forget to make even a short call home to keep up with our loved ones, the grandparents we spent summers with, the parents we thought didn’t know anything, and the siblings we used to fight with then grew to admire. Staying connected to your loved ones can certainly have its advantages as you grow older. For example, the dynamic of the relationship between family members changes. Remember when your mom tried to give you advice and you thought she was crazy? As you’ve gotten older, you’ve probably realized she made more sense than you realized. How about when your dad tried to teach you the basics of saving money and basic maintenance on your car and you felt bored? You may have had a moment where you wished you had paid more attention then.

The truth is, we need our families and you never know how much they may need you. No person is a lone star. Don’t forget to keep in touch with the people who love you the most and know you the best. Keeping up with family can help you feel more grounded, supported, and connected. Sometimes it’s nice to get a break from the people we deal with every day and hear the voice of someone who really gets you. With all of the various methods of communication today, there’s really not a good excuse to not be able to keep in contact with family. If you aren’t able to call, you can always send a text, email, letter or postcard, video chat, etc. The best thing is, it’s super quick to take a few minutes and send a message to your family and let them know that you care and are thinking of them.

So, when was the last time you called home?

Who is “Deserving” of Kindness?

To a truly kind person, this is a meaningless question. Kindness comes from within your own heart; it’s something that you could not hold back if you wanted to. This is like asking, “Who is deserving of being seen by my eyes?” Your eyes see what they see. Your heart feels what it feels. You do what you do.

Every living being is deserving of kindness. More precisely, every living being can be an object for your empathy. Every living being has the same core experience; trying to stay alive, and trying to avoid death. Even a tree grows roots to get nourishment from the soil! Every living thing seeks life and avoids death. When you strip away all the details that come with the “complexity” of human life, you end up with this very simple core experience.

Everything a person does is an attempt to further those ends; extending life, delaying death. Even reproduction extends life and delays death! A child is an extension of our one’s own life. 

I may die in 50 years, but my seed (a part of my physical body) lives on, in the form of my progeny. In that sense, I will not die until all of my bloodline runs out. This is a very deep instinct that runs back through the millions of years of our evolution, all the way back to the first single-celled organism that extended its life by splitting itself into two organisms. It’s pretty trippy when you realize that our original ancestor, that crazy little single-celled organism, is still alive today in the form of all life on this planet (including you and me).

Every living being is deserving of your kindness. We are all part of the same compost heap. We’re all headed toward a final end, and we’re all afraid to lose this beautiful thing we have called “consciousness.” Life is short – for you, for me, and for the ants in my backyard. Let’s make it good for everyone.
